    I have one of these infamous BFG 7900gs that has a GT chip, and fully unlocks to 7900gt w/ rivatuner. I replaced the stock cooler with a Zerotherm 710, and verified that it was a GT chip after cleaning off the old paste. It performs quite well, up with the best of the GT's. What do you think it's worth, given it's a rare item, and it has a nice aftermarket cooler? Would there be anyone here interested?

    It's not worth as much anymore, should've sold before the 8600 series was released.

    Isn't there some value for the "rare" factor?

    Video cards aren't like trading cards.

    LOL. You'd be suprised, though.

    To a normal consumer like the ones around here you are looking at about $130-150. If you can find someone that wants to buy a second one because they want to go SLI you might get $180-200 out of them just because they need another card and it is nice to have matched cards.

    youd be hardpressed to get 150 for that card. 130 is tops.
